Faux Dichroic Glass

with Lisa Pavelka

Learning and adapting new tricks with polymer clay is always fun! This month we are going to explore faux dichroic glass techniques using our favorite medium, polymer clay. This past year, Lisa Pavelka and I collaborated on a year long polymer clay project. To say “thank you” to all who participated, Lisa is joining us once again for a tutorial and giveaway (come back Friday).

Making a Polymer Clay Word Ornament

The time has arrived … the final month of, the Pavelka Project. This month we a doing another more ‘open-ended’ project for you. This month we are using the book, Quick & Easy Gifts with Polymer Clay, and using the ornament idea. The “word” that you choose does NOT have to be a holiday word, maybe it’s your family name, child’s name, pet’s name, or word of the year. In any case, the ornament should be small enough to hang on a tree or on a door.

My take on Lisa’s tutorial is shown below. I used many similar techniques, but you can make your word ornament however you’d like. I’ve combined textured clay, stamping, & mica powders into a sophisticated take on the word “Noel” as in “the First Noel.” Lisa offers literally dozens of ideas throughout all her books on techniques, color palettes, and so much more. [Order your books here] I also have over 150 tutorials here on the site you could use to get ideas to decorate your jar.

Welcome back for another great month of the Pavelka Project! This month we a doing another more ‘open-ended’ project for you. Here’s what you need to do. Look through The Complete Book of Polymer Clay, chapter on Millefiori Canes, and make at least one cane. But don’t stop there! Use your cane to create ONE project. It can be anything your heart desires. I made a mixed media centerpiece mason mug in a fall theme for my dining room table. You can do whatever you’d like: jewelry, mixed media, household items, frames, the options are literally endless. Lisa offers literally dozens of ideas throughout all her books. [Order your books here] I also have over 150 tutorials here on the site you could use to make a project.
